brilliant arrangement and piano technique2015年10月12日にカナダでレビュー済み
arrived within specified time, in very good condition (packed well) and as described. the music was well arranged, well played with brilliantly intertwined arrangement of classical and (modern) movie themes. will appeal to all music lovers. i have to play it at #18-20 volume level to be able to hear the very soft (pianissimo) arrangement levels but had to lower the volume again for the very loud (forte) passages. great selection; wished here were more tracks (9 tracks only) included.
The One CD in My Collection I Never Tire of Listening To2001年3月24日にアメリカ合衆国でレビュー済み
John Bayless had a vision for this album---to combine the most beautiful classical pieces along with the most romantic and engaging movie themes of all time. The arrangements and the way in which he weaves the varous pieces together, sometimes playing both themes simultaneously, are incredible. They lift you up and carry you away. The various instrumental additions (such as the guitar in track 2, drums in track 6, strings in track 5, the sound of the wind in track 4) add just the right touch---lightly sprinkled in when needed. As a professional pianist myself, I also appreciate his considerable technique and the emotion with which he infuses his music. Anyone who likes classical music and movies should own this CD. Anyone who has friends who like classical music and movies should purchase this CD for them. They will love you for it. It is my favorite CD. I never tire of listening to it.

Gorgeous arrangements. Very dramatic and melodic.1999年11月16日にアメリカ合衆国でレビュー済み
Don't be scared off by the "clown-like" picture on the cover. This album, by a true piano virtuoso/arranger, blends familiar movie and light classical melodies together into unique arrangements. Every time it's been on while I have guests, someone always asks "What's that beautiful music?"
